Is there a way to hide completed tasks in the list display in the Apple Mail application on Mac ?

Create a "smart mailbox" that only shows your open todos.

"Smart mailbox" for a to-do list... Kind of weird place to find this ;-) – Pierre May 17 '10 at 7:45
Yeah, well in my opinion Mail shouldn't be doing to-dos in the first place. :) – ghoppe May 17 '10 at 20:32
Indeed, I saw that the tasks are also present in iCal. Indeed, a better place;-) There, you can hide them correctly. I don't know why Mail show them all... – Pierre May 19 '10 at 7:52
